Back from the land of the ill

I feel I might jinx us just by writing that title... but I am really hoping that we are finished with illness for a while (let's ignore the fact that the husband has just got conjunctivitis,  that doesn't count).   Since October we've had one thing after the other with few breaks in between.  I can hardly remember a day when all four of us have been healthy.

Normally I manage to blog through the illnesses, but last week, Felix was so poorly with a virus there just wasn't the time or the energy.  For four nights in a row he barely slept.. and of course, neither did we.  I've never known him to be so ill, not even when he had chicken pox at 7 months old (and that was rough).  He wouldn't be put down, he would only sleep on us.  His temperature was around 104 for 4 days.  He stopped drinking his milk and eating.  We could only get sips of water in to him.  He had vomiting and diarrhoea as well.  Honestly, it was horrid.  He finally turned the corner on Saturday and last night (Monday night) he finally slept from 7:30pm-5:30pm with not waking up.  I think (touch a lot of wood) that we are back to normal.

So... that's why it's been so quiet here on the blog lately.  I hope you will forgive me.  Trendy Thursday will be back this week.  I do hope you will join in!  I have some blog posts in my head just wanting to be written.  I'm not feeling quite up to my creative self yet - I think last week is still having an effect on me and most of all I just want to lounge around not thinking and watching Breaking Bad!  I hope I'll be back to my normal blogging self soon.
